Hi Patches I am one of the lucky ones who has survived this cancer Pancreas cancer 22 mm tumour in 2010. I had 3 lymph nodes which disappeared while having chemo radiation and Paw Paw tablets (which weren't from my oncologist) I had the Whipple operation November 29th 2010 the tumour had shrunk to 16 mm and the nodes were no longer glowing on a PET scan. The chemo didn't agree with me either and I used to get sick the evening after receiving chemo each week. When I was having radiation I had a chemo bag attached to me 24/7 during this time maybe because the chemo was going in slower I wasn't getting sick or having to go to hospital with high temperatures. I don't mind if you share this with your husband as it is good to be included. I had the palliative nurses visiting each week they were great answering questions from us both.
